Early training in the elementary techniques of partial differential equations is invaluable to students in engineering and the sciences as well as mathematics. However, to be effective, an undergraduate introduction must be carefully designed to be challenging, yet still reasonable in its demands. Judging from the first edition's popularity, instructors and students agree that despite the subject's complexity, it can be made fairly easy to understand. Revised and updated to reflect the latest version of Mathematica, Partial Differential Equations and Boundary Value Problems with Mathematica, Second Edition meets the needs of mathematics, science, and engineering students even better. While retaining systematic coverage of theory and applications, the authors have made extensive changes that improve the text's accessibility, thoroughness, and practicality. New in this edition: Upgraded and expanded Mathematica sections that include more exercises An entire chapter on boundary value problems More on inverse operators, Legendre functions, and Bessel functions Simplified treatment of Green's functions that make it more accessible to undergraduates A section on the numerical computation of Green's functions Mathemcatica codes for solving most of the problems discussed Boundary value problems from continuum mechanics, particularly on boundary layers and fluctuating flows Wave propagation and dispersion With its emphasis firmly on solution methods, this book is ideal for any mathematics curricula. It succeeds not only in preparing readers to meet the challenge of PDEs, but also in imparting the inherent beauty and applicability of the subject.

Partial differential equations (PDEs) are one of the most used widely forms of mathematics in science and engineering. PDEs can have partial derivatives with respect to (1) an initial value variable, typically time, and (2) boundary value variables, typically spatial variables. Therefore, two fractional PDEs can be considered, (1) fractional in time (TFPDEs), and (2) fractional in space (SFPDEs). The two volumes are directed to the development and use of SFPDEs, with the discussion divided as: •Vol 1: Introduction to Algorithms and Computer Coding in R •Vol 2: Applications from Classical Integer PDEs. Various definitions of space fractional derivatives have been proposed. We focus on the Caputo derivative, with occasional reference to the Riemann-Liouville derivative. In the second volume, the emphasis is on applications of SFPDEs developed mainly through the extension of classical integer PDEs to SFPDEs. The example applications are: •Fractional diffusion equation with Dirichlet, Neumann and Robin boundary conditions •Fisher-Kolmogorov SFPDE •Burgers SFPDE •Fokker-Planck SFPDE •Burgers-Huxley SFPDE •Fitzhugh-Nagumo SFPDE. These SFPDEs were selected because they are integer first order in time and integer second order in space. The variation in the spatial derivative from order two (parabolic) to order one (first order hyperbolic) demonstrates the effect of the spatial fractional order ?? with 1 ≤ ?? ≤ 2. All of the example SFPDEs are one dimensional in Cartesian coordinates. Extensions to higher dimensions and other coordinate systems, in principle, follow from the examples in this second volume. The examples start with a statement of the integer PDEs that are then extended to SFPDEs. The format of each chapter is the same as in the first volume. The R routines can be downloaded and executed on a modest computer (R is readily available from the Internet).

## The Art of Modeling in Science and Engineering with Mathematica, Second Edition

• Category: Mathematics

Thoroughly revised and updated, The Art of Modeling in Science and Engineering with Mathematica®, Second Edition explores the mathematical tools and procedures used in modeling based on the laws of conservation of mass, energy, momentum, and electrical charge. The authors have culled and consolidated the best from the first edition and expanded the range of applied examples to reach a wider audience. The text proceeds, in measured steps, from simple models of real-world problems at the algebraic and ordinary differential equations (ODE) levels to more sophisticated models requiring partial differential equations. The traditional solution methods are supplemented with Mathematica , which is used throughout the text to arrive at solutions for many of the problems presented. The text is enlivened with a host of illustrations and practice problems drawn from classical and contemporary sources. They range from Thomson’s famous experiment to determine e/m and Euler’s model for the buckling of a strut to an analysis of the propagation of emissions and the performance of wind turbines. The mathematical tools required are first explained in separate chapters and then carried along throughout the text to solve and analyze the models. Commentaries at the end of each illustration draw attention to the pitfalls to be avoided and, perhaps most important, alert the reader to unexpected results that defy conventional wisdom. These features and more make the book the perfect tool for resolving three common difficulties: the proper choice of model, the absence of precise solutions, and the need to make suitable simplifying assumptions and approximations. The book covers a wide range of physical processes and phenomena drawn from various disciplines and clearly illuminates the link between the physical system being modeled and the mathematical expression that results.

Modeling is practiced in engineering and all physical sciences. Many specialized texts exist - written at a high level - that cover this subject. However, students and even professionals often experience difficulties in setting up and solving even the simplest of models. This can be attributed to three difficulties: the proper choice of model, the absence of precise solutions, and the necessity to make suitable simplifying assumptions and approximations. Overcoming these difficulties is the focus of The Art of Modeling in Science and Engineering. The text is designed for advanced undergraduate and graduate students and practicing professionals in the sciences and engineering with an interest in Modeling based on Mass, Energy and Momentum or Force Balances. The book covers a wide range of physical processes and phenomena drawn from chemical, mechanical, civil, environmental sciences and bio- sciences. A separate section is devoted to "real World" industrial problems. The author explains how to choose the simplest model, obtain an appropriate solution to the problem and make simplifying assumptions/approximations.
